A Delhi-based actress, in her 30s, has filed a case against unidentified people for harassing her by sending obscene messages and photographs on her mobile phone via a messaging application, police said Wednesday.


The actress, who stays in New Friends Colony in south Delhi, filed two complaints between March 7 and 29.

A case under relevant sections of the Information Technology Act has been registered.

"An unidentified man has been messaging her lewd messages and dirty pictures of sexual organs," a police officer said, quoting the woman's complaint.

Police said the woman claimed that the sexually explicit messages were sent to her from four-five Delhi numbers beginning March 5.

"Apart from being sexually explicit, the complainant claims some of the messages also contain threats to her life and suggest coercion," police said.
